Don’t Worry announce new album with Who Cares Anyway? with brand new single Big House.
Don’t Worry are back and firing on all cylinders. With the announcement of their new album and the news that the band have signed to Specialist Subject, everything seems to be coming up Milhouse for the Essex four-piece. Their latest single comes at the right time and I couldn’t wait to dive into Big House.
The riff to this song caught me off guard at first. While it has the quintessential Don’t Worry sound to it, it is piercing and seems to climax at the key moments of the opening verses and even the chorus. However, after a few listens I understand the purpose of it. It is utterly addictive. As I said, I was shocked at first and almost irritated that they would make the choice to do this with their new single. But, I was wrong. The song is worth listening to even if it is just for the riff. Another stand out feature of this song is the polished nature of the vocals. The band have an indie-emo twist to their sound and this makes for an interesting hybrid of musical styles. If I was to critique some of their early work it would probably be because of the patchy vocals. Whether it is their recent work with Specialist Subject or their growing experience in the music scene, the vocals have become a staple feature of the band’s sound. The harmonies are wonderful and “I am never coming back” is a hook that will have you singing along. This is certainly a step in the right direction and with a little bit more of this polish you will know about them soon enough.
I am very excited for the future of Don’t Worry. The band seem to finally have gotten their big break and I hope one day I will be able to be ‘one of those guys’ and say that I knew about them first. Check this one out.
